    Hello, before anyone laughs, I have to state that this is needed by my Mom. I need to know if anyone still has Mac OS 7.5.2, and Wordperfect 3.0, and still knows where they are. My Mom has a Power Mac 7500/100 with a 512Mb HD and hold on to your hats 24MB of RAM. This amazing creature has been in service since she bought it back in '96. She cant find the OS Disc or her WordPerfect 3.0 floppy's. I tried contacting Apple about purchasing MacOS 7.5.2 from them, but I got no response (they are probably still laughing). If anyone has either of these please give me a shout.

    Thanks a ton in advance for any support.

    ***I have tried to get her to upgrade for about 4 years now, if it were going to happen Im sure it would have happened about 3 years ago***
